Sony DSC-RX100 II Review. A Must have Breakthrough Camera For Enthusiast And Casual Photographers Alike.

Updated on October 14, 2013

So Why Sony DSC-RX100 II Review? Why call it a true breakthrough product?

Sony DSC RX100 II reviews are slowly picking up these days. Google it. You may be wondering why? Let me tell you in one simple sentence.

"It is the best compact camera ever produce so far and it is the only one you will ever need" period.

A look into: Sony DSC RX100 II

plus an honest review.

Okay here goes my story. Listen humans!

Shortly after I receive this camera, me (yours truly), being a professional photographer who often carries a 36 Megapixel DLSR, will always start with some 'Lab Tests' for any camera products. Habit, habit, nerdy.

Well, I told you I did some test, so here is what I have done:-

1) I take out 4 different type of cameras ranging from a medium end compact to the high end DLSR to have them focused on the same object at a similar range of ISO settings. Guess what? This Sony camera beats my D7000 at ISO above 1600. WHAT? REALLY?


2) Compared some macro shots between A65 with 300mm zoom against the RX100 II. OH YES BANANA, this thing even managed to delivered a superb detail shot with very nice brokeh. Somehow it turn out that this Sony camera can be use for macro photography too! (ha! don't go searching for it on amazon yet!)

Next Next Next!

3) Some basic video test (Sorry guys, I don't work much with video) but I did some very basic recording using the RX100 at my favorite restaurant (with many humans walking and passing by me) perfect for some full 1080/60FPS recording. Result? I can even put my $750 dedicated video camera as my webcam now. Clearly Sony RX100 II is the winner here because it recorded a clear view of the restaurant scenes, even with little lights.

To conclude, I find myself using RX100 a lot more then my usual DLSR. No, its not because I'm a baby in photography (I told you before that I am professional), it just that not only Sony DSC RX100 II is small, but it also a beautifully packed camera full with features that you will not feel short of (unless you are really, really one crazy dedicated and passionate photographer that willingly climbed over the mountain of an active volcano to get 'that' perfect short) yes, unless that.

About the money, well I know it's a lot of money to spend on, but portability + easy to use + super compact with features + just works awesomely is the perfect combination anyone would seek nowadays, yes?. So a one time price for a breakthrough product, doesn't sound so bad right? :)

Some Youtube for THE lazyness. - You're welcome!

Look here! My new baby. :) - Now now. Don't be jealous.
